What Was Your First Guitar Chord?
Author: Lindsay Buescher
100 guitarists were surveyed “What was the first guitar chord you learned?”
As a complete beginner, I played my first guitar chord just a couple of months ago and it was an E minor (Em). This puts me right in line with the majority of beginner guitar players. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I still haven’t properly learned to play G major because the fingering is quite difficult. It surprised me to see G major at the top of the chart since it causes me much strain in my fingers. If you play guitar and happen to remember, is the first chord you first learned listed in the results above?
